    G.Skill International Co. Ltd., manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid-state storage with solid quality, has today released its ECO low voltage, 1.35V dual channel DDR3 memory for Intel Lynnfield Core i5 and Core i7 platforms.

    Compared to the current DDR3 standard voltage of 1.65V, G.Skill’s ECO memory modules require 18% less VDIMM. This can have a great contribution to power efficiency, environmental friendliness and ultimately saves G.Skill customers money. In addition, the lower voltages decreases a system’s operating temperature, resulting in improved stability. G.Skill’s own internal lab tests have revealed, 1.35V memory modules produce 16% lower temperatures than standard 1.65V memory.

    These new low voltage modules will be available via G.Skill’s collaborated distributors and resellers soon and include the following specifications:
    • G.Skill DDR3 1333 4GB (2GBx2) CL9-9-9-24 1.35V
    • G.Skill DDR3 1333 4GB (2GBx2) CL8-8-8-24 1.35V
    • G.Skill DDR3 1333 4GB (2GBx2) CL7-7-7-21 1.35V
    • G.Skill DDR3 1600 4GB (2GBx2) CL9-9-9-24 1.35V
    • G.Skill DDR3 1600 4GB (2GBx2) CL8-8-8-24 1.35V
    • G.Skill DDR3 1600 4GB (2GBx2) CL7-8-7-24 1.35V

    16% lower temps, what is 1.65 ram temps maybe ambient +5-10c so thats insignificant
    My opinion is out on these for now. they may not scale with voltage at all.

    Low voltage doesn't mean better over clocking all the time.


    For example the phenom 2 905e.

    LOL, when did the standard DDR3 voltage became 1.65V? :wtf:
    As far as I remember 1.5V is the JEDEC standard for DDR3. :slap:

    1.65 is just the max recommended for the i7's built in memory controller, so that is what most DDR3 manufacturers have stuck to.

    That does not make it Standard, there are more platforms that use DDR3 other than i7s.

    Most AMD platforms are used to the 1.8 and 1.9v memory modules like the PIs when they first came out.

    This is aimed more towards a very low wattage pc im guessing.

    Hmph, they keep saying it's optimized for Core i5 and i7's, does that mean it under-performs on AMD systems?:(
